In addition to CMS "Standard Documentation Requirements for All Claims Submitted to DME MACs" (A55426), some Local Coverage Determinations (LCDs) have policy specific documentation requirements that must be adhered to as well. The Surgical Dressing Policy Related Article A54563 (Surgical Dressing LCD L33831) outlines specific surgical dressings and supply elements that are required on the Detailed Written Order (DWO), which must be obtained by the supplier prior to billing Medicare.
